Also a Nice lookin Reid... Mine has number 1522 on the cylinder if I remember correctly.. The 8hp Reid I have has been in South Dakota since the 1960's and was brought back from Pensylvania or West Virginia at that time.. My Dad bought it in the mid 70's.. I need to talk to the guy my Dad got it from and get the whole story..

Looks like the ventillation in your shop needs a little help! Nice running engine, but I wouldn't breathe that smoke for too long Oil vapor in the lungs is not good for them!
